Title Emotional Chairs - A study of how emotional objects enter our lives
Author(s) Jensen, Halfdan Hauch
Date 2013
English abstract
This thesis is a design study of how everyday objects with embedded digital emotionality can be expected to be accepted into peoples lives. Through the design and evaluation of a chair and a stool with digital emotional features, the project explores the way these objects are given presence, and let into peoples lives. By placing them in the homes of volunteers for a shorter time, the project zooms in on the initial meeting with more emotional everyday objects. The project defines the creation of personality and narratives around the objects as being good design assets in designing for emotional relations. Further it states, and discusses, how balancing detailing and open/ended design features are important in both a general design perspective and when creating personality and narratives.
